Ben Stokes.

English all-rounder Ben Stokes has promised to give a “full explanation” of what happened on that night in Bristol where he was alleged to have caused bodily harm to two men during a street brawl.

He has conceded the fact via his agent that his actions had negative intact on the English team ahead of the Ashes as well as the England Cricket Board (ECB). The all-rounder was withdrawn from the England squad for the Ashes pending further enquiries into the street brawl outside Mbargo Night Club on the early morning of September 25 where he was apparently hurling punches toward two men.

The all-rounder has also parted ways with his bat company, New Balance, a contract which is learnt to be worth of 200,000 pounds per year. The swashbuckling all-rounder has also issued an apology to English celebrity Katie Prince after apparently mocking her disabled son Harvey which generated more negative reactions, especially after the Bristol incident.

However, Stokes’ agent and a former England cricketer himself, Neil Fairbrother has insisted that despite the incident his management company is in full support of the player. He also stated the fact that full details of that fateful night in Bristol will get disclosed at an appropriate time following the conclusion of the investigation by the Avon and Somerset Police.

“Ben explained to me the full circumstances of what happened in Bristol, and I told him that he has my total support and backing,” said Fairbrother in a statement. “I am aware that he has fully cooperated with the police inquiry and voluntarily provided a detailed statement on the same day as the incident. He will continue to assist the police in any way he can.

“Ben will also make public his full explanation and evidence when the time is right. On legal advice, that is not possible whilst the investigation continues, and no charges have been brought forward. Ben does not wish to prejudice the process.

“He is also concerned about the impact the widespread publicity has on everyone involved including the ECB, his teammates and the game of cricket itself which he loves. “We will not be making any further comment relating to this at this time,” Fairbrother concluded.
